I missed the party

Finish Along 2014
I guess I'll be over here in my own little corner working on my WIPs, since I missed the Q2 FAL linky party.  And it is a long WIP list, too.  Hopefully failing to link up on time is not indicative of how much success I will have working my way through my WIPs :)
1. 36 patch blocks - I need to make two more blocks before assembling the top

2. turn these vintage pillowcases into laundry bags - I want to make at least three of these, maybe five

3.  this fabric needs to be sewn into pj pants.  I wanted these to be done for last Christmas, which obviously didn't happen.  so now I'm getting a head start for next Christmas, right? :)

4. a Mondo bag from these Japanese fabric scraps

5.  Cracker quilt from these 30's fabrics

6.  & 7.  are both in the next photo - the blue / green fabric stack in the back is for a 'brick' quilt, and the rest of the fabrics are for the Lucky Stars QAL that I obviously didn't get very far with :)

8, 9, and 10 are in the next photo.  they are a new Sashiko project, a Vintage Modern jelly roll that had started to be one thing, but then I ripped out the stitches and I'm planning something different now, and two FQs and a zipper to make a boxy pouch with.

and there are some 'roll over' projects from last quarter:

11. Going Coastal zig zags - I don't have any new photos, but the top is done and my Mom is getting ready to quilt it on the longarm for me.  The back makes me very happy; I pieced it from my collection of lobster fabrics.

12.  split rail fence - still needs to be basted and quilted

13.  making pillowcases - ironic because I have some pillowcases I am turning into something else :)

14.  penguin quilt - I can't look at another piece of fabric without my son commenting that I still haven't finished his penguin quilt, or it seems like I forgot all about his penguin quilt.  Oh, the Mama guilt ;)

I guess that is enough for now - after all, we all know I am not going to finish all 14 WIPs on this list,  during baseball season no less, but this way I'm covered no matter what I feel like working on when I do get the chance to sew :)

I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday

I finished Skorca with the penguin borders, so you need to finish yours! And pillowcases into laundry bags? I'm intrigued!

I'm sorry you missed the link up. The good news is, there is a three and four : ) We will still celebrate each of your finishes. Happy sewing

oooh I feel your disappointment and relate. You'll always have WIPS to keep you company as I will! It's a sign of an active person.

oh dear, is that all that's on your list? Barely worth having one ;0) Good luck with it all, maybe missing the link up will mean you finish everything!

Great projects! It almost looks like you are working on some of my UFOs. I have the same bundle of 30s fabrics from Connecting Threads and the DS strips cut and ready to go. LOL! Please finish mine while you are at it, looks like you will have plenty of time...Love the 36 patches!
